Abigail Adams: Letter to her Husband, John Adams
This item is a 3-page letter from Abigail Adams written to her husband John Adams in May 1776. It is a wonderful piece of American Revolutionary/Colonial literature to give your students something that was written by a woman. (And not just any woman -- the nation's first Second Lady and second First Lady.)
The text comes with an image of Abigail Adams, is formatted to look more like a letter that was handwritten, and comes with footnotes.
It comes with a 1-page reading assessment that has 10 multiple-choice questions. The questions range from a few easier in-text questions to more challenging beyond-text questions that require higher order thinking skills.
There is also a 1-page answer key that goes along with it.
The documents are in Word and in PDF; therefore, they total 10 pages.
I usually use this reading assessment as a "cold" read test for my American literature classes as part of their Revolutionary Literature unit.
But sometimes I use it as a separate piece and teach a mini-lesson on Abigail Adams to give my students a look at women in this time period.
This could also be used as an emergency lesson plan if you are in a pinch and need something good but need it quickly.
